help with my build

Postby jlmusgraves » Mon Mar 24, 2014 6:00 pm

okay so im fairly new to demon souls and i cant find the right build..
basically i want to be a tank. but with protection spell and soul ray.
i want to be able to roll fast
and also what weapon and armor should i use...
i was thinking dragon knight sword +5
i read the faq on how stats on weapons work but its still a bit confusing...for example if i a ton of points in str. and i use a regular +10 sword would be better than an dragon knight sword +5...or should i pick up a unique weapon? i really wanted to use a striaght sword also
thanks for your input

Go to the character builds section on the wiki you will find something there to suit your needs I recommend Northern Regalia Strength Faith or Dex.

I'll get back to you when I have a bit more time to address this properly. You are so far off the mark... you need a lot of help buddy. But for now just follow this guide here- viewtopic.php?f=16&t=16270

If you are going str then use the crushing path. Dragon weps don't scale.
The truth is what is, and what should be is a fantasy. A terrible, terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago.

There is no tanks in Demons souls the closest to what you would be asking is a warding spellsword which would be poo in my opinion If your looking into a melee magic hybrid try a spell sword/gaxe really fun I'm sure you can find something great here or on the wiki.
You can also try a DBS mage good melee weapons and decent spell damage also can take a few hits.
My set up: 50/18/40/34/12/30/16/8 priest
Spells: Soul ray Fireball Second Chance
Rh1:Dragon bone smasher
Rh2:Crushing knight sword (fast good moveset)
Lh1:Talisman of god switch to Dark silver shield after casting second chance.
Lh2:insanity cat
This is a decent build for PvP and really good for PvE this is a build I believe you will enjoy if you need help building I will be on Friday I will add you and give you materials hoped I helped!

i think the spellsword build is to much magic...i would like to you my sword as a primary with just a tid bit of soul arrow...would this thin me out to much on my stats also? possible to be a master of sword and magic?

You can 1h the DBS with 30 strength 34 two handed grants you a 1.5x bonus giving you 50 strength you also have access to the crushing knight sword which is fast and stun locks to death with experience you also get soul ray and fire ball which do about 200-300 without any bonuses rings you want to equip Eternal warriors and Ring of magical sharpness body form when invading or helping as a blue foe/friends ring and cling ring for armor
Silver coronet more mana or old monks head wrap increased spell damage
Black leather set light good set decent defense
I can do Friday if not next beat 1-1 and summon my blue in 5-1 don't level up I will drop all items needed for the build for you

In real life when you hold something with two hands it hits harder/is easier to carry the same in this game so you get a 1.5x damage boost 50% when you two handing strength weapons Like the DBS so when two handing the strength becomes 51 instead of 34 1/2 of 34 is 17 34+17 is 51 so that's your total damage output when two handing I really can't think of a better way of explaining hope this helps! also keep in mind when choosing strength choices always choose an even number because decimals do not round up ex. 50.5 will not round up to 51.

Ok, finally have a moment, and I've read through the posts already here. One thing no one has touched on yet, and what I always recommend for a rookie, a Faith build. Or since you wish to do a little casting, a Faith/Caster.
Here's one with a small focus on casting. You'll find this to be exceptionally strong in PVE too, which will be a bonus since you're relatively new-
48/18/36/18/12/18/48/07

Use the blessed path, recommend weapons:
Great Axe (2 hand only)
Claymore
Mirdan Hammer
Knight Sword

Use the Talisman of Beasts for all your casting
The miracle Second Chance is a must
These will enhance the potency of your offensive spells:
Ring of Magical Sharpness
Monks Headwrap
Kriss Blade +5

Don't take help from anyone who's offering to mule equipment to you. For your 1st few builds, earn your equipment. Having it handed to you will take away the challenge of your initial experience to Demon's Souls, which would be tragic.

Good luck,
